Depends on what you want to parse/generate.


There are some newer things around, where real language
analysis/synthesis is in use.


IMHO there are some things that are newer than the stuff from the
60ties.


Generating documents, that on the first look may look like a
scientific paper needs more compiler knowledge than only analysing the
stuff from some decades ago.
